An Opportunity to Change Their Lives

By Juan Pablo Romero Fuentes | Project Leader

We are continuing to work hard to give hundreds of children an opportunity to change their lives. Jose is an example of our success. Jose suffers from Cerebral Palsy. The public school system in our town had no ability to admit him as there was no wheelchair access.

Private schools would not allow Jose to attend their schools unless he had a full time private assistant paid for by his mother. This of course was not possible for her financially. So, 2 ½ years ago Jose’s mother asked if he could attend our school, we of course welcomed him. His mother comes with him each day and stays with him to help him advance in any way he can.


When Jose first came to Los Patojos he was nervous and afraid. Now he is comfortable, happy and advancing. He is included in sports activities which his classmates help him with, he is learning how to write and draw and is learning how to communicate which he had not been able to do.

Jose’s mother is very happy as well. She can see he is reaching new goals, he feels safe with the other students. His mother says the compassion shown by the students and teachers has changed Jose’s life forever.


Jose has changed the lives of our students as well. They are learning to respect and help those with disabilities. We are proud to be a compassionate, inclusive school.

Thank you to each and every donor that has assisted us to continue our work with hundreds of children.

 

Muchas Gracias Juan Pablo and the team at Los Patojos
